Patiala, November 22

In a major relief to the residents, the district administration today opened the Patiala-Rajpura road, in front of the new bus stand, for light vehicles only.

The stretch from the Chaura road chowk to the Urban Estate chowk was closed two months ago to ease the process of construction of the elevated road made for entry into the new bus stand. The bus stand is currently under construction.

Officials said, “Currently, the stretch has been opened for light vehicles only. Later it will be opened for all vehicles.”

The bus stand is being constructed at a cost of Rs 60.97 crore. A separate grant of Rs 7.70 crore was released for the elevated road.
